Ahead of Tuesday’s Carabao Cup game against Southampton, the Blues have confirmed Christian Pulisic has returned to training.

Pulisic has begun taking individual fitness work after previously suffering a series of setbacks during his injury recovery.

Pulisic suffered an ankle injury when playing for the United States in early September and hasn’t featured for Chelsea since then.

Meanwhile, ahead of Chelsea’s 4-0 Champions League victory over Malmo last Wednesday, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel gave an update on Pulisic.

“These players with quick movements like Christian, once they feel this pain, and they are not free in the movement, the recovery is not happening,” Tuchel said.

“You start all over again, and you start all over again, and you reach a certain point and the pain comes back.

“And you have to do a little pause and start all over again.”
